Tuesday Evening Birch Aquarium Reception and UC Tech Awards Presentation

birchAt the end of the first full day of conference activities, we've got a treat for you! Join us at the Birch Aquarium perched atop the cliffs of La Jolla with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and Scripps Pier. 

What to Expect

  • Hosted reception 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Enjoy drinks and a meal consisting of small-bite culinary delights and serving stations, accompanied by conversation and the wonders of ocean habitats. 
  • UC Tech Awards Presentation 7:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. honoring recipients of inaugural UC Tech Awards.
  • Do you recall what Mark Twain had to say about his summer in San Francisco? The sentiment can equally be applied to La Jolla evenings (even in August). The reception and awards presentation are both outdoors. Do bring a jacket!
